In English we have read the story of ‘Peace at Last’. We used the information on the front and the back of the book to discuss what the story might be about:
"It might be about a brother and sister bear"
"I think they are trying to get to sleep but something is keeping them awake."
We then read the story, creating our own sound effects for the noisy parts! Next, we worked in groups to sequence the story using pictures. We then worked in groups of three the act the story out before performing our stories to each other. Finally, we wrote about the story, using neat handwriting and the three sentence rules.
Welcome to Year 1!
Our first few weeks in Year 1 have been fantastic!
Together, we wrote our own recipe for a great year in Year 1. First, we found out what the word ‘recipe’ means and we baked our own yummy fairy cakes. Then we decided what important ‘ingredients’ we would need in order to have a great year together.
We have loved exploring our new classroom, the children feel very grown up sitting at tables and writing in exercise books! We have been using the maths equipment to; explore numbers to 100, count forwards and backwards, count in 2s and 10s and number bonds to 10 and 20.
